Conan Doyle, S. A. (n.d.). The Refugees. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Chapter 1. THE MAN FROM AMERICA. It was the sort of window which was common in Paris about the end of the seventeenth century. It was high, mullioned, with a broad transom across the centre, and above the middle of the transom a tiny coat of arms?three caltrops gules upon a field argent?let into the diamond?paned glass. Outside there projected a stout iron rod, from which hung a gilded miniature of a bale of wool which swung and squeaked with every puff of wind. Beyond that again were the houses of the other side, high, narrow, and prim, slashed with diagonal wood?work in front, and topped with a bristle of sharp gables and corner turrets. Between were the cobble?stones of the Rue St. Martin and the clatter of innumerable feet.
